EXPLANATIONS. 

1. When places other than Edgartown and Massachusetts are 
named in the original records, they are given in the printed 
copy. 

2. In all records the original spelling is followed. 

3. The various spellings of a name should be examined, as 
items about the same family or individual might be found under 
different spellings. 

4. Marriages and intentions of marriages are printed under 
the names of both parties, but the full information concerning 
each party is given only in the entry under his or her name. 
When both the marriage and intention of marriage are recorded, 
only the marriage record is printed ; and where a marriage 
appears without the intention recorded, it is designated with an 
asterisk. 

5. Additional information which does not appear in the 
original text of an item, i.e., any explanation, query, inference, 
or difference shown in other entries of the record, is bracketed. 
Parentheses are used only when they occur in the original text, 
or to separate clauses found there — such as the birthplace of 
parents, in late marriage records.
